Battalion of Centaurs (Part II: Showdown)

Pioneer Budget GW (Selesnya) Theme/Gimmick Tokens Tribal


SOLDIER: Aaagh...

KING: cof... unh... coward! Sneaking into the bushes... hiding under the trees like a vermin... cof cof... fight me on open field and I'll break your skull like an egg... you, coward... cof cof cof

CHIEF: Centaurs didn't enter your castle. Centaurs didn't steal your food nor poison your water. Centaurs didn't SLAUGHTER YOUR CHILDREN... SO DON'T TALK ABOUT COWARDS!

KING: You are wild beasts... cof... cof... does the lyon have mercy with the stag?... Only humans... understand the truth of nature... cof cof

CHIEF: Beasts understand balance. Humans understand war. And now, it is my human half what pushes my spear into your heart...

KING: UUgggnnhh...

This deck started as an idea of selesnya tribal centaur deck with cards I already have (centaur healer, karametra's gift, call of conclave) and near 10 USD total cost of new cards to buy. But I fell in love with the theme and now I'm willing to buy all this cards. The main topic is a crossfire between the two armies: centaurs vs soldiers, as an ending of the story of my first deck Battalion of Centaurs (Part I: The first clash).

The sweetest game is like this:

Turn 1. Lagonna-Band Trailblazer.

Turn 2. Assault Formation.

Turn 3. 2 x Lagonna-Band Trailblazer.

GAME OVER... In my dreams.

Plan B is to use Witch's Oven to create food tokens and then blow them up with Rampage of the Clans or finishing things off with March of the Multitudes in the longer games. It is litteraly an assault to the opponent with the horde of centaur tokens and the army of soldier tokens, which is pretty awesome, specially when both make it to the battlefield.

You can knock off $ 5, by using Sworn Companions instead of March of the Multitudes, your only finisher hit will be the centaurs, though. Still, the deck is pretty awesome.

Thanks in advance for your comments.
